  1. Cool nithya.Lovely to see this red color chutney. My sister once made a soup with red pepper combo with tomato. That was also awesome. Nice try. All the best.

  2. Red bell pepper chutney looks delicious love it.

  3. Seen bell pepper chutney shared by many foodies as well. Seems a popular chutney yet I haven't made it before. Its thick and adore the loads of spices inside. Perfect to be paired with tosai but for me, as usual, it will be wonderful condiment.

  4. New to me and looks yum. Bookmarking!
